One of the legendary players in the CS:GO scene, Edouard “SmithZz” Dubourdeaux is a 31-year-old French player who had played for teams like Team Envy, Team Titan, G2 Esports, Team LDLC and more. In his career, he earned around $300.000 from the events.

On 3rd February 2020, SmithZz announced his retirement and saddened the CS:GO community.

Here is what SmithZz said:

“My career as a professional CS player officially came to an end.More than 15 years of grinding the game out, managing to make it my job, creating memories I will never forget, including winning a Major. This game built me as a human being. It introduced me to people that are now so important in my life, it made me travel around the world, discover so many places. And for all of that I will be thankful for the rest of my life.”

He continued:

“I want to thank my last home, G2 Esports, and I wish them nothing but the best, the staff, the players, everyone deserves it. I could not have dreamt of a better organization to end my career at. They gave me the opportunity to transition towards a streamer career over the course of last year, and I thank them for that as well.”

SmithZz added:

“It is like a fresh start, grinding as a streamer with many objectives in mind, including one that is particularly important to me, making professional CS more accessible to the community. Reinforcing the link between those two worlds, something that is not easy to do when you are active pro player. This new challenge reminds me of my younger years in CS, and I’m eager to take it up.”
